Software Defined Networking: Modernizing Data Networks

Juniper Networks® is proud to sponsor and host Telecom Council’s event Software Defined Networking: Modernizing Data Networks

 

Similar to what virtualization represents in computing power, Software Defined Network (SDN) brings similar virtualization to lower layer networking. SDN has tremendous promise to reduce costs, accelerate service introduction and fuel innovation—but to reap these benefits we must first clearly understand the key principles of SDN, and plan a clearly mapped and non-disruptive transition path.

The Telecom Council event is packed with valuable information from market trends, research, to clear execution steps, as well as the opportunity to see emerging companies and their innovation. You can find more details on the agenda here.

We are a long ways from this and yet cell phones have impacted our lifestyle immensely. It has democratized the society and about three quarters of the planet’s population have access to mobile phones. While emerging countries use 2G / 3G, developed economies are benefiting from the high speed and productivity boost offered by 4G LTE.
